Fab'n'Funky #150 - Non-Traditional Christmas

Hi Crafties,

Well, we are all partied out over on Fab'n'Funky - well maybe not quite yet.  Christmas is coming!  Thank you to everyone who joined us for our birthday fortnight.  We loved your projects and what a difficult job picking the Top 3.  But choose we did and the lucky winners are up on the blog right now.  Check them out at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

We have a Christmassy challenge for you this week...

Non-Traditional Christmas

So you can use non-traditional colours or a non-traditional image.  We have two sponsors this week - My Creative Classroom and Stamp Fairy.  Who both have a fab prize for our lucky winners.

Here is my inspiration...

Loads of layers on this one.  I started by making an A5 card blank by scoring on my Ultimate Pro.  I layered up pink pearlescent cardstock and then a sheet of patterned glitter paper from Creata.  My border is made up from brown pearlescent cardstock and light pink glitter card.  My ribbon is from Creative Expressions. 

I used Spellbinders 2012 Heirloom Ornaments for the baubles.  My sentiment stamp is from Polka Doodles and came free with a magazine a while back.  I inked through the white bauble with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.  I curved my baubles on the edge of my table and then mounted with foam tape.  Finally I added three gems to the top left corner.

I hope you can join us for our Christmassy challenge this week.  Can't wait to see what is in store for us!

Happy Crafting,
Rachel x
